umbrellas brought to asia. but what has been the norm for generations is now starting to change. perhaps the catalyst of this change is the perception, either rightly or wrongly, that the balance of power in asia is undergoing a once in a lifetime transformation. what we are seeing is that asia's collective attention is gradually shifting away from economic prosperity to, instead, security concerns. where nations used to focus on trade and commerce, now they discuss nationalism, military budgets and even provocative behavior. look no further than the territorial dispute in the east china sea. for these reasons, we must shift away from the old approach, which unnecessarily divided the region and separated economic engagement from our political engagement. the old way of doing business is not only cumbersome, but it is becoming less relevant. tomust somehow find a way reinvigorate our engagement of asia, not for fear that we may be left out, but rather we must engage so that we can once again move the focus squarely back to economic prosperity. this notable shift and focus in trade to nati

about the knife. seems they, too, were trying to make sense of her changing story. >> you said you remember putting the knife in the dishwasher after killing travis. but you also say you don't remember anything after dropping the knife on the bathroom tile. which is correct? >> i have a vague memory of putting the knife in the dishwasher. i'm just not sure if that was june 4th. >> and there are more questions about the gun used to kill alexander. was it in a holster or not when she says she grabbed it out of the closet. now suddenly she's not so sure. and this is key, because the state believes she brought a gun with her to kill alexander and never really grabbed a gun from alexander's closet. arias seemed to get tripped up again on this question about whether or not the gun was loaded. >> did you tell the jury when you were talking about the tal attack in response to one of their questions that you believe the gun was unloaded. do you remember saying that, yes or no? >> i don't know. >> after that, the prosecutor let her have it. >> what were you going to do with the gun, throw i
. the united states will not engage in talks for talks' sake. it will require a change in north korea's parties, demanding that pyongyang will meet its obligations on denuclearization. this leads to a few important other principals. first, the nightsticks will not accept north korea as a nuclear quest the united states will not accept the tree as a nuclear state. we will not compensate them for returning to dialogue. we will not tolerate north korea for bullying its majors -- measures. -- neighbors treat the tysons cannot approve without improvement in injured-korean relations. in the meantime, at the u.s. diplomacy on north korea on a wide range of issues continues. close coordination with our treaty allies, japan, remain absolutely central to our approach. we have expanded our engagement might develop a new dialogue key global actors who have joined the rising chorus of voices, calling on the dprk to comply with obligations. china does remain central to altering or korea's calculus and close u.s.-china confrontations will remain a key focus of the medics -- of diplomatic efforts. while the cl
, and this is our opportunity to do it. mr. chairman, you have worked with me on your bill making many changes at my request. they have made the bill better and reduced the negative side effects of previous versions. i trust you think so as well because you have included the changes in the new bill. the new bill in your substitute amendment also included a revised bill by senators gillibrand and kirk on the subject of gun trafficking. those revisions also reflect changes that i asked senator gillibrand to make, and i think it would be worthwhile to outline all the changes that have been made to the bill since they were first introduced. i think they demonstrate good faith of the chairman and senator gillibrand. for instance, senator gillibrand's bill originally would have made it a federal crime to transfer two or more guns if that person knew that the result would be a violation of state or local law. that would have given states and localities a one-way incentive to address new gun control measures and force the cost of prosecution and incarceration on the federal government. it also would have cr

, this is my friend. but it changes the definition of what it means to be a friend. and that's it seems to me what supporters of proposition 8 are saying here. all you're interested in is the label and you insist on changing the definition of the label. >> it is like you were to say you can vote, you can travel but you may not be a citizen. there are certain labels in this country that are very, very critical. >> pretty interesting analogy there. let us know what you think about it. saying someone is friend, does that change the definition of sfrend? jeffrey toobin, he was in the courtroom today. jeff, what's your sense of how the court is going to rule? this is obviously if they go ahead and do something big here, this is huge. this is transformational for much of the country. >> it is but, you know, this was an unusually baffling argument. i have to say. usually, you have some sense, sometimes you can have a wrong sense and i've certainly had wrong senses before, but the court so fractured over so many issues that, frankly, it wouldn't surprise me to see almost any result at this point. it

have got to change the trajectory of this country. we capital sustain ourselves if we go to $20 trillion, $20 trillion debt. whether you're a democrat, republican, libertarian, whatever you are, independent, you should want a strong monetary policy and a strong economic policy. and we have got a few more years left, and this is a good start right here in the senate if we can get this bill up and pass it and the house will do something. we will fund the government until september 30, which we are supposed to do. that way we can start on the 14 budget -- the 2014 budget and maybe go to regular order is what we would like in the appropriation process and not go from crisis to crisis. what we have done in the house and the senate and the white house is involved in this, too, in recent years, we have gone from -- lurched from crisis to crisis, and then we come up to the deadline and people say oh, we have got to have certainty, so we kick the can down the road just a few more yards, but that's not the way to do business. this country is too important. the business community needs cer

running the company, had some outside people and some very fine people at the time. all that changed -- for the first part of the book, but the show, what we meant to the country overall, there's a couple of vignettes i will talk about briefly. there was a book written on something called -- a book about a russian sub that went down in the northwest pacific. the russians didn't know where the hell he was. they looked and looked, couldn't find. u.s. knew exactly where it was. and wanted to recover it because it was a nuclear sub. the codebooks were important, and the technology was important. they decided they would try and recover the so. there was a meeting in my apartment in new york with the general counsel of the cia, his deputy, and a deputy of howard hughes. of course, if they're going to do that they had to build a vessel, a very large vessel with a hole in the center that would stoop this sub out. and yet a think about what if the russians decide what we're doing was looking for that sub and knew what it was. what would happen if they fired on us? where would you bring this s

. could your life in the air about to be changed? we have a special report. let's go out front. >>> good evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett. cold feet on gay marriage. could the supreme court be having second thoughts of taking up the lightning rod issue? today protesters and gay rights supporters swarming the steps of the supreme court and inside the justices were listening to the arguments. bullet point by bullet point. for and against. california's ban on same-sex marriage. that's the so-called proposition 8. the justices have the power to make gay marriage the law of the land. currently, it's actually only the law in nine states and washington, d.c. if you go straight from that to all 50, well, that's a really big edict from the high court and some justices sounded wary of issuing such a broad ruling. >> on a question like that, of such fundamental importance, why should it not be left for the people? either acting through initiatives and referendums or through their elected public officials? >> well, others like justice kennedy questioned why they were hearing the case in the first
really have had a lot of change in those kinds of broad public perceptions. that's different than the question of what a person might say coming from an underlying bubbly cal world view or the christian faith. but i think there's been a lot of motion in our culture over the course of these last 17 years or so. >> suarez: during the time there's been a lot of motion, that has church basically -- or your branch of the church, stayed in the same place? >> i think so. i would argue that really the christian faith has always been somewhat out of tune with the cultural ethics of the time. if you go back to new testament times you have greco-roman culture that certainly didn't embody christian values in terms of human sexuality and christianity was countercultural and the old testament religion was countercull dhourl the canaanite context. so it isn't that big for us to feel out of step with our culture at some given time. >> suarez: reverend schuenemeyer the same question. did the united church of christ look at the same shifts in the culture and come from a different conclusion than pr
changing? >> i think it's a big opportunity for the prime minister to show what could happen in russia. we'll have to see because they're sitting on top of the oil reserve. you know where the the price of oil is. there, as you pow, there are a lot of problems. we have to see whether, you know, russia can show that it's taking some of these reforms that needs to take, and we'll see and this is a perfect opportunity to do so. so far, i think, as i said, the only g20 meeting that really did any positive of the one in london. i give credit to gordon brown that was his greatest moment, i think, at that particular time to do it. you had well-organized meetings. i was in korean there was nobody organizing like the koreans. it was a great organized meetings. wars and, you know, nothing much came out of it. then the one in france it rained the whole time and it was rain on the parade because it was a disaster and nothing happened. there was a lot of nice intentions comes out of mexico in the last g20 it's not clear what we'll see. one of the areas we didn't get in to here is the whole question of r

it ability development -- capability development, a, have you seen any glimpse of possible change in the decision-making and will of the leadership that will decide whether or not they will comply in any sense at all with requests made by the global community, and b, are there concerns relative to the cooperation between north korea and iran relative to holistic missile technology and other aspects that might give iran -- modify the timetable for the ability to get this capability? >> for the first part of your question at the second part for the relationship between north korea and iran, that might be better addressed in closed session. clearly the sanctions have had profound impact on iran's economy. by any measure, whether it is inflation are unemployment availability, commodities, etc. that situation is getting worse. at the same time, these publicly, overtly change in iranian leadership, the supreme leader's approach, we can go into perhaps more detail our discussion in it closed -- in a close setting for some indications that might be of interest to you. i will let it go at

is that the law on this type of issue, especially as it relates to material support of terrorism, actually changed in 2006 and so it may be that they won't be able to reach back because the constitution and try him before that time. let's listen to one constitutional law expert i spoke with. >> until now, we thought that we could try them under these charges in the military commission system and it looks like it's not going to turn out that way which means that material support charges can be tried in the federal court system as they always have and they are highly successful in terms of bringing indictments and in terms of bringing convictions. >> so, wolf, we expect to hear a lot more about this suspect tomorrow with that presentment in federal court in new york city. >> we'll see who represents him in that as well in federal court. thank you very much, joe johns. let's dig deeper with senator ron wyden of oregon. he's a member of the intelligence committee. your immediate reaction that we learned to the news today. you may have learned about it longer than we did. what do you think of the decis
and that has to change for the program to be here done the road. but, look, chris. i think republicans, if they saw true entitlement reform would be glad to look at tax reform that generates additional revenue. and it doesn't mean creeping rates, it means closing loopholes. it also means arranging our tax system so we have economic growth. and i think we have been saying that from day one. >> chris: well, senator durbin, i heard some give there from senator corker. let me ask you: are senate democrats willing to make serious cuts, reforms to entitlements, if you get added tax revenue? and what do you think of the prospects for a grand bargain. >> chris, let me tell you, i think bob gave an honest an constructive answer. really, what he articulated is what he did in the bowles-simpson commission and i want to thank him for that, patty murray has done an extraordinarily good job and we will move to the next stage, the grand bargain stage and the president is trying to set that up, sitting down on a bipartisan basis, not eliminating medicare, as i'm afraid the paul ryan budget would do bu
when interrogators were ired for iraq. the clearly kneaded to be -- needed to be changes. congressional direction, the federal acquisition regulation was changed and requiring the best approach. which required documentation that the decisions written agreements on spelling out rules and responsibilities. also at congress' urging and direction there was a requirement added for business case 0 developed and approve before new interagency contracts could be put in place. congress asked for a series of audit by the department of defense about inspector general found less problems over time. we were satisfied that the mechanism in place, there's demonstrated progress and removed them from the list. the other is the irs business systems modernization. we put that on the list in 1995. irs was monitored in technical management weaknesses with the system. over the years they made steady improvement. they required an expenditure plan from irs which gao is required to review. the irs has made measurable progress they installed the first module of the new system which allows for daily updated of ta
. the obama administration announced the proposed changes today: they would require two-thirds less sulfur in gasoline and a reduction in other emissions beginning in 2017. they also would set tighter pollution limits for new vehicles themselves at the same time. the e.p.a. says it would reduce premature deaths and improve public health for a minimal cost. but opponents say it could hit consumers at the pump by adding as much as nine cents a gallon. juliet eilperin broke this story for the "washington post" and she joins me now. welcome to the newshour. >> thanks so much. >> so why is the obama administration doing this, putting these proposals out there? >> there are a couple of reasons. one is the fact that they are requiring vehicles to be cleaner in the years ahead. they've basically reduced greenhouse-gas emissions from these vehicles. and so you will see between 2016 and 2025, the vehicles are going to become much more efficient, get more piles -- miles per gallon. so one of the things automakers are asking for is for cleaner fuels because the sulfur in gasoline really affects the ca
's not clear whether this will do anything to change north korea's behavior immediately. we've heard some hostile rhetoric over the last few days. to borrow u.s. ambassador rice's words the sanctions are designed to bite hard. for instance, there have been cases reported to the u.n. sanctions committee of north korean agents carrying cash in bulk. the effectiveness will depend on how measures are implemented in each country and to make the sanctions work member nations must cooperate in exchanging information regarding north korea's activities and act upon them. >> thanks very much. >> they threatened t u.s. with a preemptive strike. >> the officials said countermeasures will be necessary if the u.s. does not change what they called its hostile attitude. they accused the u.s. of trying to spark a nuclear war. they said they will exercise their right to a preemptive attack on what they called the headquarters of the aggressors. the aurves officer told the crowd that north korea is ready to fire a nuclear missile at washington, d.c. state run tv broadcast the rally. military personnel and c
on your bill making many changes at my request. they have made the bill better and reduced the negative side effects of previous versions. i trust you think so as well because you have included the changes in the new bill. the new bill in your substitute amendment also included a revised bill by senators gillibrand and kirk on the subject of gun trafficking. those revisions also reflect changes that i asked senator gillibrand to make, and i think it would be worthwhile to outline all the changes that have been made to the bill since they were first introduced. i think they demonstrate good faith of the chairman and senator gillibrand. for instance, senator gillibrand's bill originally would have made it a federal crime to transfer two or more guns if that person knew that the result would be a violation of state or local law. that would have given states and localities a one-way incentive to address new gun control measures and force the cost of prosecution and incarceration on the federal government. it also would have created for the first time a situation in which violation of state
the bread anyway, let alone with the proposed changes. >> if i can't make it work, i will shut my bakery down. no matter what the government tries to do with me. >> trouble is egypt can't grow enough wheat to feed its people and they can't afford to increase production. it needs to be paid for with dollars, precisely what egypt doesn't have right now >> the challenges facing the egyptian government are so new mexico us are. -- -- numerous. >> there is no easy or painless solution to the economic problems. in some ways the whole of egypt, not just its poor, is today on the bread line. >> the internet has reportedly slowed down after one of the biggest cyberattacks ever recorded. it is unprecedented. a run of possible further disrippingses. a european organization block spam content was targeted. detainees on a hunger strike at ib have made new -- goib guantanamo bay. the men are protest g over their indefinite confinement and harsh treatment at the camp. a massive landslide in washington state in the u.s. has cut off more than 12 homes. residence in whidbey island reported hearing a boom
and it is clear from our discussions they are better north korea policy must change. today we will look at the illicit dvds that are underwriting north korea's weapons programs. were going to look at it ballistic missiles sales, at its meth trafficking. this is the only country in the world that manufactures and traffics mass. for going to look at counterfeit of the u.s. 100-dollar bills and were going to think about the reason why this country has been called the supreme estate. we will hear from one witness who will testify north korea's illicit moneymaking machinery continues to turn. but it is this dependency by the regime on notice that dvds that can affect be exploited. this is the achilles' heel we did this one. in the fall of 2005, the bush administration targeted a macau-based bank of delta asia for its money laundering role while u.s. money was counterfeited, they were laundering for north korea. this led other banks to shun north korean business, which finally isolated the regime and cut off its ability to get current fee. however, after kim jong il made references, in this l

who fly for a living and some lawmakers. lisa is in washington watching reaction to this change in security rules. so, lisa, why the change now? and who has a problem with it? >> right. okay, first, why the change now. the leader of the tsa says they have been studying this for years and that they figured out through that assessment that knives actually no longer pose the risk of breaking into a cockpit, allowing a terrorist to take control of the plane or to blow up the plane. so the tsa says knifes like you see here are actually not a catastrophic threat, and these are the knives that tsa says will now be allowed. they are knives with blades that are no longer than 2.36 inches and they are also knives that do not lock in place. so that's why the change now. who has a problem with it? well, for one, senator chuck schumer of new york. add news conference today urging the tsa to change its mind. he said if it didn't, he might try to make them. >> if the tsa refuses to go along we would consider legislation and my guess is it would be large bipartisan support. i don't know anybody
and with the new change the president is about to put in place, how will it be different? >> basically, erin, right now it all depends on an early warning system in places like japan. then it gets down to these ground-based interceptor missiles, which are sort of the last line of defense before something would hit the continental united states. right now, that's based on two big bases. one in california, one in alaska. the u.s. has about 30 of these interceptor missiles. what would happen is an early warning system near some place like japan would alert that a launch had taken place and the missiles would launch to try to intercept that nuke that would be coming in. what's going to change, the u.s. is adding another radar system to give it better warning and it will be increasing its interceptors by about 50% adding 14 new silos by the year 2017. >> and do they have a missile capable of hitting the united states yet? i know they have been testing that with their pay low, but do they have a missile that can do that? >> yes and no. they have a rocket that in theory, it it could carry it as far as ala

reasons for our health care costs keep going up because we have not changed the way patients and doctors see each other. we must be innovative and creative in tackling the traditional costs of health care. as a representative representing silicon valley, i have helped lead the way in this by promoting innovative technologies such as telemedicine, personal health connective devices and other tools. i will be reintroducing the health care innovation and marketplace technologies act later this year to continue this effort, and let's hope folks on the other side will understand its importance. most importantly, however, i will continue to stand with my friends here in the chamber tonight to protect medicare and the medicare guarantee. we can fix our nation's fiscal house by being innovative rather than using the same old ideology. we can improve our nation's standing by being courageous and standing by our nation's seniors. i want to thank you and i yield ack. mr. bera: i thank my dear friend and colleague, congressman honda, from california. the reason why we are speaking on the floor today
't seem to be worried. at least they isn't through the day of october 5th. that changed overnight on the 5th and the 6th and i heard from a pretty well plugged in person in the policy part of this, is that the israelis would know if there was going to be a war because they had great intelligence and they had a source high up in egypt, and they didn't -- i didn't know who it was at that time. israelys have now said -- not total yunnan him inity on this but the people i take seriously say they recruited a very high-ranking egyptian, he happened to be former president nassar's son-in-law, which makes it even more interesting, and that they were quite sure that if this was for real, they would hear from him, which they did, on october 4th he demanded a meeting in london with their military intelligence. military intelligence flew to london. was debriefed by him. went back to israel, reported to the prime minister, and that's what changed their perception so that the next day, we got the message from golda meir, there is going to be war and it's going to happen by the end of they today. and tha
